A big congrats to DJ Rants, the newest Featured Stamper (FS528) on Splitcoast! We were on the ODBD team together for quite a while & I’ve been an admirer of her fab gallery for a long time. After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the birthday theme & most of the layout, but I used different images, different paper & left off the top frame.
To make my birthday card, I die cut 3 white panels then sponged each of them from the top left inward, letting it fade to white in the lower right. I stamped & die cut the big Happy on the largest layer so the section wouldn’t be missed when the other layers were added on top. The little birthday was stamped on the lower right of the top panel. I also die cut 2 more big Happy dies out of white to shadow the stamped version. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast & I chose Lynne as the newest Featured Stamper (FS520)! Congrats, Lynne! I chose THIS card to case…keeping the birthday & big circle elements. But I used different images, different colors & different paper. 
After stamping, coloring & die cutting the images, I also used oval dies to cut a ring to go around my little green planet. I figured little green aliens needed a little green planet, lol. Originally I was going to let the paper show thru the big circle cut out of the white, but it just overtook the little green alien so I cut the circle smaller & put it back to give a little more emphasis to the alien. The little blue stars were sprinkled around & the greeting was stamped below the spaceship.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

This is for several Splitcoast Challenges…Sketch (SC597), Color (CC587), Technique (TLC590), & Clean & Simple (CAS381). And it’s also for my dad, who has a super sense of humor. Since he lives in Texas where they’ve had about a ton of rain, this is how imagine he’d be kickin’ back, ridin’ it out, if he didn’t already live on the high side of the street, lol.

I printed out this cute image onto Hammermill digital card stock. I haven’t worked a lot w/ digis so it was a bit of trial & error until I got the size about right. Then it was die cut & I left the die in place when I colored it w/ Copics & sponged in my cloudy sky. The little seagulls were stamped & a life saver added in the corner. The rest of the card is per the sketch & the top white section was also sponged w/ a little cloud stencil I made w/ scallop scissors.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
